    want it to be clear to show off phone.
    want it to be slim.
    don't want it to scratch/dent sides of phone like most hard plastic cases do.

    I just got the Caudabe Veil and it is exactly what I was looking for. A couple people have asked why I don't have a case on it anymore.

    As mikemj23 suggested, The Veil from Caudabe might be what you're looking for. I use the black one on my Space Gray 5S and love it. No bulk whatsoever, just there for scratch protection.

    Or if you like bumpers, Elago makes an awesome bumper in many colors. Just got this one today and I'm loving it. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Agreed. If you want slim, it doesn't get any better than the Caudabe Veil. I've got the frost on my iPhone and it looks superb - because you're looking at the actual iPhone and not a case.

    You got any pics you can post of the veil on your space gray phone. Thanks.

    Wow the Veil is really thin! How is the feel/materials? I found that the Apple leather case was the best combination of thinness and feel of material but if the Veil doesn't feel plasticky and cheap, might have to get it!

    Awesome looking. Do you use a screen protector since there is no lay on table design on front?

    Got that and hated it. The bottom lip was ridiculously floppy and as you said it was near impossible to remove. For the money, the luvvitt is way better and at least 100% clear. My personal choice is still the Caudabe Veil because of how thin it is, but get it if you're very careful with your phone.

    Nah, I'm not a fan of using screen protector.s I find the crystal clear films to be an annoying and smudgy mess once they lose their oleo phobic coating. And I used Power Support and Spigen films so they weren't cheap. Plus they scratched easy even though they were considered to be of higher quality

    I haven't looked back since. I love the look and feel of the naked glass. I never lay my phone screen down unless it's rocking a case with a lip and my left pocket of my pants are strictly for my phone and never anything else so I've never scratched a screen or had any other type of incident.

    Sounds like me. I don't use screen protectors but with no lip on front I was hesitant. Just ordered wisp black veil. Thanks for the help.

    No problem. I'm sure you'll enjoy that case.

    Power Support Air Jacket.
    It's more expensive compare to other cases but it comes with two screen protectors, both anti glare and crystal clear.

    Power Support very slim and thin. But after dropped to floor some time, it has crack. :D:D

    Sorry about my English this is not my primary language.

    A bought this case in Brazil's market called Kallunga. It's clean and thin as you can see on the photos. I think that you can buy cases like that in the Amazon. The name of case's mark is Geonav.
